Another day, another duel
So nothing could live up to Beckett-Burnett? Well, not so fast. Sabathia and Buchholz is pretty good theater so far today. CC has a no-no through five. Buchholz might be coming of age in front of our very eyes.
Still no word on a starter for Tuesday, but I’m guessing Tazawa.
That was one of the best games I’ve seen in a long time last night. If it was a playoff game, that game would be rehashed for years.
Where do you rank that catch by J.D.? Just a fantastic game. It was fun to be there for it.
In the context of the rivalry from 2003-09 — call it the Epstein-Cashman era — it was second only to July 1, 2004 in terms of regular season games. July 24, 2004 definitely had drama, and a brawl and a walkoff, but it wasn’t a GREAT game. It was more of a slugfest.
Poor Youk in left today. He’s getting exposed.
